Menu Plan Monday ~ March 7/16

Menu Plan Monday for the week of March 7/16 at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

(please note that I have included affiliate links in this post on products I don’t hesitate to genuinely recommend)

Hi everyone! Hubby and I had a great anniversary away without kids.  We spend the night in the city and enjoyed shopping, dinner, and a movie out. We saw Eddie the Eagle and I really liked it. So nice to get away even if only for a night, yay! 🙂

Recipe Highlight:

Last week my favorite recipe was the Slow Cooker Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs recipe. Oh my was it ever good and so EASY to throw together. I loved that you just had to cut the spaghetti squash in half and put it in along with your frozen meatballs and jarred sauce. I will definitely be making this recipe again! Yummy!!

Easy Freezer Meals:

Does the beginning of the week stress you out knowing you’ll have to come up with dinner ideas all over again?  I’ve gotten so much feedback that many of you are so busy and need a way to get dinner on the table fast each night. That’s why I think this plan for spending less than an hour on the weekend to prepare 10 meals that go into the freezer until you need them is simply brilliant.  All of the recipes in the FreezEasy Meal Plans require very minimal prep. Just load up all the bags with the ingredients and freeze them. Then you can take the meal you want, thaw it partially in the fridge overnight or in a bowl of warm water on the counter for 20 minutes, and drop all the ingredients into the slow cooker, Dutch oven, skillet or baking dish. So easy and I love how organized the plans are with recipes, shopping lists, video assembly instructions, printable freezer labels and more. Wouldn’t that make life so much easier for you?  Get all the details HERE.

    I’m going to try that spaghetti squash recipe this week! I’m so glad you mentioned it since I’m without an oven this week and looking for easier non-oven meals.

      It’s so good and the spaghetti squash shreds up so good when it’s finished cooking, loved it!
